* BIFURCATION DIAGRAM OF LOGISTIC EQUATION MODEL *
WHAT IS IT?
This model is an application of the famous Bifurcation diagram of logistic equation X[t+1] = k * X[t] * (1  X[t]); with k=0..4 and X[t]=0..1 HOW IT WORKS
There are up to 10,000 turtles that has the job of paint one single point at X[t+1] on each iteration (In fact, only 400 turtles can be drawn, because the canvas is 400x200 pixels). The graphic represents each application of logistic equation over some value of the parameter k, remember that k is in [0,4] interval.
The first 40 iterates don't drawn any point, but you can see how is the dinamic behaviour.
HOW TO USE IT
SETUP button: Initialize the model, draw axes, optionally draw grid with 10 segments, and set up all turtles (SAMPLES in the model).
Go: kx(1x) and GO buttons: run the model
SAMPLES slider: create <samples> number of turtles (values of k)
x0 slider: setup the X[0] value. This variable don't have effect, because initial conditions are not drawn.
kMin: setup the lowest limit of k
kMax: setup the greatest limit of k
rndcolor?: Boolean variable that its useful if you want to draw each point with a different color, to see (in long term) a vertical line of the same color.
grid?: Boolean variable that establish the grid with 10 horizontal and vertical divisions
The model works with 2 initial parameters: k and X[0].
Press SETUP, then Go [ or GO (1step) for 1 iteration ]
THINGS TO NOTICE
 Set 20 samples to apreciate all points of graphic into each application THINGS TO TRY
 set 400 samples and 200 iterations (time = 200) EXTENDING THE MODEL
You can write code for change vertical scale. RELATED MODELS
